The long-awaited theme song this year ‘Caring Christmas’ is now available! The new song perfectly showcases the musically giftedness of the OSC ambassador this year Kandy Wong and producer Harry Ng. We hope it brings you love and joy while listening to the sweet melody.
Operation Santa Claus ( Full Version)
The annual “Operation Santa Claus” (OSC) campaign, jointly organised by Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK) and South China Morning Post (SCMP), kicked off today (November 3) at Broadcast Drive announcing 18 beneficiaries for this year's fundraising drive, and a performing arts initiative aimed at engaging and revitalising disadvantaged communities in Hong Kong.
The Financial Secretary Paul CHAN Mo-po, Director of Broadcasting Patrick LI Pak-chuen, the South China Morning Post’s CEO Gary LIU and the composer of the OSC theme song Harry NG graced the ceremony. They were joined by OSC 2021 ambassadors, award-winning actress Crisel CONSUNJI, singer and actress Kandy WONG and artiste Pakho CHAU, who will be supporting the fundraising campaign for his third consecutive year. Other guests included representatives from beneficiaries and donors.
Eighteen charities were selected as the beneficiaries for this year’s fundraising drive, including NGOs and causes serving children and youths, the elderly and individuals with physical and mental disabilities.
A group of activists and women workers established Hong Kong Women Workers’ Association (HKWWA) in 1989. Subsequent to a campaign to defend maternity leave provision, those involved in the campaign realized there was an urgent need to establish a formal organization to cater to the needs and interests of women workers.
HKWWA sees that we have unique and important roles to play: to work with women workers in addressing their issues and concerns, to apply gender perspectives in the organizing work, and to highlight opportunities for women to participate in policy planning and to advocate for policy change.
Developing mutual support network for elderly labour as cleaning workers and or waste-pickers in community aims to develop a mutual support network for elderly cleaning workers, waste-pickers, and people living in the community. We will do this by providing services to address the specific needs and problems faced by elderly labour as cleaning workers and as waste-pickers, and creating initial community dialogue among workers and with people in the community.
Expected no. of beneficiaries: 150
- 100 waste-pickers
- 50 unemployed
